Sumary of COVID-19 vaccine for babies and toddlers could be approved early 2022, chief public health officer says:
- Canada’s chief public health officer says COVID-19 vaccines for babies and toddlers could be approved early in the new year, depending on how clinical trials play out.
- ” In a major vaccine milestone, children aged five to 11 started to receive their first doses this week after Health Canada approved Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine for that age group.
- Moderna is waiting for Health Canada approval on its COVID-19 vaccine for children aged six to 11, and is also in the midst of recruiting younger children for a clinical trial.
- ” Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam says she’s hoping to see some clinical trial data later this year for those under five years.
- It’s ultimately up to Health Canada to review the data and approve the vaccines.
